   Software Development 2003 East Call for Papers

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Once again I am chairing the XML track at Software Development 2003 
East in Boston, September 15-19. The Call for Papers is now live:


Submissions are due by February 14. We're looking primarily for 90 
minute classes. There are also some slots for half and full-day 
tutorials, panels, and birds of a feather sessions. If you haven't 
presented at this conference before, it's best to start off by 
proposing one or two 90-minute sessions.  For the half- and full-day 
sessions, we prefer people who've presented before with good reviews, 
or who have a proven track record at other conferences.

For the XML track, we're interested in practical sessions covering 
all aspects of XML. This is not specifically an XML show, so we tend 
to find that our audience responds better to more practical, how-to, 
basic sessions as opposed to more theoretical, high-level sessions. 
For instance, a simple introduction to XQuery would go over better 
than a detailed comparison of XQuery optimization techniques. The 
sorts of topics we'd like to see in this track include:

Intro to XQuery
XML Schema Basics
Intro to RELAX NG
DOM for C++ Programmers
XML in the .Net Environment
JDOM Makes XML Easy
XSLT for Beginners
Integrating XPath with Java
Pull Parsing XML
XML Parsing in Embedded Systems
Developing Web Applications with XUL

On the other hand, we're not so interested in more theoretical, 
research oriented sessions such as discussions of LMNL, JITTS, or 
alternative linking syntaxes. Personally, I'm interested in this 
stuff, but it's just not our audience, which consists mostly of 
working programmers who are neither XML experts nor fulltime XML 
developers. Assume most of the attendees do not subscribe to xml-dev.

One thing previous attendees have told us is that they'd like to see 
more new sessions at each show, so we're going to be looking 
preferentially for talks that have not previously been given at SD 
East. There isn't a lot of audience overlap with the West show 
though, so we probably will want to repeat new sessions that are 
scheduled for West this year.

If you have questions, you can drop me an e-mail. I'll be travelling 
this week so it may take me a little while to get back to you. 
Proposals can be submitted online:


Thanks! I look forward to seeing some of you at SD East in Boston in the Fall!
